Dayton History's Victorian Afternoon Tea is on Sunday, 2 - 4pm, at historic Patterson Homestead. Costumed interpreters speak to the etiquette of the mid-19th century -- how to raise families, care for a house, cook, and serve meals. Clothing of the era is discussed, including what was considered proper for different events throughout the year.
